1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    I just bought a pair of Red Wing Foreman Chukkas, in Briar Oil Slick and they're real nice. I guess I'm feeling a little unsure (and maybe self-conscious?) about their versatility. They're not super clunky but they're not as sleek as something like an Alden or AE chukka might be. Can anyone speak to what you would or wouldn't wear these with? I have this idea that I could wear these out walking around a city, out in fields and light hikes (on an upcoming trip to the English countryside) and also into a nicer restaurant (when paired with a shirt and coat, for instance). Am I right to think they can work in all of those situations? Are they "too work-boot-esque" to be dressed up? Would you say they're the same, or more/less formal as something like the Alden Indy?

    They're on par with the Indy boot, which is an orthopedic work boot.
    Those will go well with anything outside of a real pair of trousers.
